Conflcied and Taking His Time

The Washington Post is reporting that America, lo, a certian section of Minnesota is conflicted over the war in Afghanistan. Well, welcome to the game. With the question of 40,000 more troops looming over the political head of President Obama, which the New York Times says he is taking his time in deciding, the troops avoiding roadside bombs meanwhile don't have the luxury of being conflicted. Nor do they have the convience of "taking their time".

Private John Doe, report for you're 4th tour of Afghanistan on January 11, 2010.

Gee, I don't know Lt. I'm kinda conflicted and I would like to take my time.

Private Doe, you will serve X amount of time in Levenworth.

Meanwhile, the events of Washington go merrily on as Private Doe is no longer conflicted. He is, rather decidely focused upon each waking moment of his new sentence he is now serving.
